Well, I've used and abused my sewing machine over the last year. It has worked beyond its design capacity and I must say works flawlessly on light weight canvas projects of the type that most cruisers would like to do. Now that I realize the type of heavy sail repair and general sewing I'm wanting to do, I think I'm going to go in search of a heavier duty machine with a larger area under the arm for handling more fabric. Perhaps one of the older Sailrites rather than the new ones which are small like my machine.

Onwards...new sewing projects.
